Pöddes in Kirchspiel Maholm, Wierland

The estate was first mentioned in 1485, when there was a vassal fortress built for the von Lode family. Later on, the estate belonged to the Kalffs, von Essens and von Stackelbergs. The Early-Classical main building that had replaced the medieval fortress in the 1770s burnt down in 1911 (in ruins), after which a new luxurious eclectic main building was erected nearby and completed in 1913. Because of its corner towers and granite facing tiles, the building reminds one of a medieval fortress.

In 2000–2001, the main building was restored as a hotel and restaurant.

By the historical distribution the manor was in Viru-Nigula Parish in Virumaa County. By the present administrative distribution it belongs to the Aseri Municipality in Ida-Virumaa County.
